In recent decades, secularism, or the separation of religion and state, has been increasingly questioned by various religious movements and organizations. This book examines how Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist and Sikh fundamentalists are seeking to overthrow established political, religious and social norms in their quest for a religiously based form of government. The coverage of the work is global and includes studies of all world's major religons, thus providing the reader with a comprehensive introduction to a subject of growing importance.
